Johann Donabaum Setzberg Riesling Smaragd

75 cl

For fans of this region, this might be the most interesting area in Spitzer Graben. The grapes here take longer than usual to develop, probably due to the slate content in the soil. We certainly think they are well worth the wait!

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Aromas of jasmine, white flowers, honeysuckle and ripe, red apples with some tropical fruit nuances.
Palate Dry and medium-bodied with balanced (medium) acidity. The fruit characters are complex and slow to evolve with flavours of honey, ripe apples, peach, pineapple, and citrus fruits. A serious and complex wine that would partner really well with a variety of foods. Indeed, it needs food to bring out its best qualities.
Colour Medium greenish yellow, with silver reflections
